This is a tiny treasure, collectible box from Monet, that I found recently, on a clearance table at a local department store.
I was immediately drawn to it's white heart and coffee cup beauty.
I carefully opened it, and was even more struck by the miniature sugar cube that hung from the little gold chain. I knew it would make a perfect gift for a friend living far away and going through physical difficulties.
I added a few packs of the newly created "Bliss" milk chocolate hot cocoa mix, that I discovered in the grocery store aisle.
Is there anyone you would like to offer some "Bliss" to?
You might want to give it in a pretty crystal coffee mug(found in the Dollar Tree shelf). Add colored tissue and a homemade card. Cost for the above mug and hot cocoa packet was $ 1. 59.
Found this thank you note at my back door the other day. The sweetly written note was dressd up with the small floral tube, filled with water and fresh flowers from a friend's garden. What a special and unique way to say "thank you". Another idea you might want to try. The floral tubes are so inexpensive and can be purchased at any florist or garden shop.
"The gift of friendship-both given and received-is joy, love, and nurturing for the heart. The realization that you have met a soul mate...a kindred spirit...a sister...a true friend...is one of life's sweetest gifts." ~Dolley Carlson
Let your friends know that you care in some small way today.
It will mean the world to them. I know that on a first hand basis.
